Gramophone Magazine July 2018 Editor's Choice
The music of Dohnányi (admired by figures as disparate as Brahms and Bartók) embodies virtues of taste, humour, impeccable control of form and beauty of style; all qualities relished by The Nash Ensemble in wonderful new recordings which can only assist with this composer’s continuing rehabilitation.
The Nash Ensemble’s high voltage interpretation [of the Third Quartet] serves the music well, having tremendous physical impact and bringing an unusual, urgent intensity… The Nash Ensemble triumphantly surmounts all the technical challenges while projecting absolute enjoyment of and devotion to the music. BBC *****
The Nash Ensemble dig into Dohnányi’s Serenade (1902) with gusto, relishing the music’s myriad felicities...their performance is rife with character and incident...The Nash’s performance of the Third String Quartet (1926) is more impressive still...If you’ve never taken to Dohnányi’s music before, these performances should win you over. If you’re already a convert, you’ll want this. Gramophone
